The town is famous for its award winning stretch of sandy beach, buzzing pier and well-maintained seafront which is positively crammed with attractions for all the family, from crazy golf to go-carting, and there really is something for everyone. The town centre is home to a great variety of shops selling everything from holiday essentials to charming local crafts.
If you fancy a little down time where the land meets the sea you will find the fabulous Gibraltar Point National Nature Reserve, a haven for wildlife across all the seasons, and a tranquil place to walk and simply take in the view. The seal sanctuary at Natureland is popular with children keen to learn more about these fascinating creatures.
The poet Alfred Lord Tennyson was inspired by the wild beauty of the surrounding countryside, and the local landmark, Gunby Hall, that inspired his famous line ‘a haunt of ancient peace’ is well worth a visit.
